RAFT BUILDING HELPFUL HINTS

Below is a list of helpful hints intended to make your experience with us as enjoyable as possible. Please ensure that all of your group are aware of these hints, as inappropriate clothing can ruin the session.

• Bring a full change of clothes (including underwear). It is best to assume that you will fall in the water at some point.
• Denim jeans are not really suitable
• Swimming costumes are ideal to wear under shorts and a t-shirt.
• You will need shoes or trainers to wear whilst on the raft (these will get wet). No Flip Flops, Crocs or Wellies
• On sunny days sun cream
• On cold or windy days a thin waterproof coat to wear whilst on the water to combat the wind chill factor is a good idea.
• If you have a wetsuit you are welcome bring it with you
• Bring a bin bag to put your wet clothes into after the session.
• We provide tea, coffee and squash free of charge. There is no shop on site so if you require anything else you will need to bring it with you.
• There are mosquitoes on site during the summer so insect repellent is advised if you are prone to being bitten.

What our customers say

Our group had the best time paintballing at the weekend, even with everything that’s going on with Covid-19 they were very professional and made us feel safe and at ease! The staff were great!

Nicole Watton - Paintball Party - Aug 20

Absolutely 5 stars! This was our second visit and was somehow even better than the first time. Very organised and Covid safe, we had the best time, the trail was brilliant and we really couldn’t have asked for more.

Quad Trekking - July 20

Family of 4, (13 and 7 year old children), had a great time. Brilliantly organised and friendly and professional team.

Family Adventure - July 20

I booked a stay at the Oaker Wood Glamping site for a stag do during the Covid 19 restrictions. The site was large enough for our small group to socially distance and still have a good time. When we arrived the team had freshly cleaned and disinfected the site. We were then left alone on site but with the knowledge that the staff were on hand should we need them. The facilities are excellent, the staff are friendly and helpful and they've put the correct practices in place so that you can book during these restrictions and still be safe. I'd highly recommend.

Family Quad Trek - July 2020

Very helpful staff, exceptionally clean Glamping. Loads of space for social distancing holiday with family. Lovely spacious hot showers! We had delivery from local bakery for breakfast and local fish and chip shop helpfully put each families order in separate carrier. Also good cooking facilities and comfy mattresses. We couldn’t fault it. Great weekend.

Family Glamping - July 20

We’ve just enjoyed the Quad biking activity. Two adults, 16yr old and 11 yr old, was great for all ages. Sam and Chris were great instructors. The site is lovely and all staff are doing great and adhering to the new policies in place due to COVID. Definitely recommend!

Quad Trekking - March 2020

We took our team here last week for a team building day, and it was absolutly fabulous. We were treated to a round of shooting, which was great and really brought out a new side to the team; perfect to get them interacting with each other in a "non-work" enviroment. The team were really friendly, patient and clearly expereinced. We then did the 100m zip wire - which was great fun and really got some of the team to come out of their shell. We also used the meeting room before hand, tea and coffee facilities all provided, as well as a simple lunch. Couldn't of asked for more. The team already want to return!! Thank you to all the team at Oaker wood who made our day such a success.
